Practical Alternatives to Self-Harm

Alternatives to Self-Harm (ASH) is an approach that has been demonstrated to lead to a reduction of self-harm risk for people with emotional dysregulation. It can increase confidence in clients to maintain more effective coping strategies, as well as progressing to other therapies as needed.

Workshop 1 will:
Provide a brief overview of a model that you can apply to your work with those who self-harm without suicidal intent. The workshop is for all front line staff wanting a better understanding and to gain more confidence. It will explore how to be effectively responsive to these clients, and provide some tools to get you there. This day involves some group work.

Workshop 2 will:
Be targeted specifically for those who offer individual treatment or therapy. The underlying evidence-based principles learned in Workshop 1 will be further explored with experiential tasks including role play to enhance your learning.

The ASH program also offers a collective approach, whereby support people and whanau (family) can be included, which is of particular importance within Maori and Pacific Island cultures.
